Wrong, MAGA is an official campaign slogan by one of the two major presidential candidates.

But you are just trolling, you know that.

Meh... its always best not to ascribe to malice what sheer ignorance easily explains. And, this is a conservative you are talking about. While they are pretty malicious, their ignorance seems to know no bounds.

There is a difference between ignorance and stupidity. Ignorance implies a lack of knowledge. Stupidity implies an unwillingness (sometime malicious)to see the obvious. In this instance Phester is stupid, not merely ignorant.

"On November 12 he signed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office requesting exclusive rights to use the slogan for political purposes. It was registered as a service mark on July 14, 2015, after Trump formally began his 2016 presidential campaign and demonstrated that he was using the slogan for the purpose stated on the application.[24][2"

I hope the Trump voters, in their "I'm With Stupid" shirts, are allowed to try to vote. Some of those idiots are so clueless, they may set fire to voting booths...

This was a completely pre-meditated behavior:

Elections administrator Linda Phillips told CBS affiliate WREG-TV the fired poll worker had been informed several times what the rules were.

"He was given very clear instructions. He was given clear instructions the next day, and again didn't pay attention to them. So he was terminated," Phillips said.

If someone were to try that here I can see how people would not try to stop him from getting his face smashed in.

I wish we had video of this Trumpanzee.

Violence is not the answer. Maybe the election committee needs a psychologist.

What kind of person joins in "service" of public voting, only to in actuality deliberately suppress the voting? A noble man? A man of integrity? Believability? Or, is he just another example of the bigoted trash fire of a citizen who deserves to have their face smashed in for committing violations against the democratic process and right in everyones face? Rather than violence I would confirm his fears that "the actual purpose of Democrats voting is to suppress people exactly like yourself. Liberals mean to disarm and replace your vote with as many immigrants as possible and to forcibly marry your children off to them. BLM will not only defund your police protection, but make you their target.", we could go aliens, Qanon, Hillary, Krampus, West Hollywood, Pizzahut, meth and latex, skies the limit.
